Jelani Day’s Mother Say’s Her Son’s Body Was Not Missing Organs


As the investigation continues into the death of Illinois State University grad Jelani Day his family grows more concerned.
Day was last seen on August 24 and was reported missing on August 25 by family when he didn’t show up to class for several days.
The morning prior, Day was seen on video surveillance entering a dispensary in Bloomington. Police found his car in the woods 60 miles away in Peru, Illinois two days later. Police said the clothes he was last seen wearing in the surveillance video were found in his white Chrysler 300.
The LaSalle County Coroner reported a
body was discovered on Sept. 4 floating near the south bank of the Illinois River.
On September 24 Day’s body was positively identified.
After an autopsy was performed it was reported that pathologist could not find a brain or other organs, including Day’s liver or spleen.
Day’s mother then released a statement saying that her son’s organs were not missing.
“ Family, We need to hit pause for a moment.

As outraged and upset as we are, we must stay the course, and stick to the facts in our search for answers.

Carmen Bolden Day, Jelani’s mother released a statement and it reads in part:

“Some things need and have to be clarified.
No organs were missing. I do not want to stray off from the facts. There were contradicting facts from the first preliminary autopsy compared to the second independent autopsy, but this is not a case of organ harvesting, however, my son did not put himself in a river. My son was murdered and my goal and purpose are to find out what happened and hold those responsible accountable!!!”


  1. It was reported from autopsy, no organs or brain….then second independent autopsy basically stating he had organs. BIG DIFFERENCE!! If those autopsies had that big of a btween what they did or didnt find, somebody better b getting paid kos I’d sue they asses!!!
